Thanks for all the responses so quickly, I am still debating so I think I will stick with my router for now and keep saving so I can buy a better set maybe the Delta/DeWalt 7670. In the meantime I will make the jig as in MT_Stringer s post, it s a real good way to get them done, thanks for the post MT.

What you don’t see is there is a stop block under the right side of the jig which will position the end of the cabinet side perfectly every time.

Good luck.

With the stop in place, your dadoes will be consistent.

Note that I use a 1/2 inch pattern bit and make two passes to create a 1/4 inch deep dado.
